Converting Original Longboard To 2 Expression Pedals?

This might sound ridiculous and not worth the effort but I'm wondering if anyone knows if it's possible to convert the volume and wah pedal from the first original longboard into 2 expression pedals.  I've had the board for a long time but when my Pro rack crapped out on me I replaced it with an HD Pro X which means the longboard became useless.  I also have the Filter Pro, Mod Pro and Echo Pro racks but only one expression pedal so I thought it might be possible to take the thing apart and somehow make the 2 pedals on the board work with those units.  Any advice or info would be greatly appreciated before I have to start yelling at it for not working out the way I want or easily enough.

You can go into the HD pro menu by double tapping the move button.  preferably you can use the hd pro edit software by clicking the controller tab and assigning the functions.  i use the left as wah or drive and the right as volume.  i dont use the toe exp switch but turn effect on/off by assigning to one of FS1-4.

That is cool... how did you connect your logboard to the HD Pro?  Do any other functions work?  I wonder if you could connect it to the HD500?  Just curious...

I wasn't aware that there was ANY functionality with that first longboard and the HD Pro X-which is why I got buying the MK II shortboard.  But my hope was that I could take the existing volume type pedals from the old longboard and connect the wiring to 2 separate 1/4" jacks and turn them into expression pedals that would work with other line 6 rack effects that I have that can use the EX1 expression pedals.  I think I have to get in and see what kind of potentiometer is used inside though.
